Winds delay Melbourne channel dredging

In preparation for the commencement of dredging operations in Port Philip Bay, the Black Marlin was expected to arrive earlier today. The transport vessel Black Marlin, which is carrying barges for the channel deepening project,

has been delayed by unfavourable wind and waves.

The Black Marlin is a semi-submersible transport vessel, on which the deck can be partly submerged to enable the barges to be unloaded directly into the water.

The barges will be collecting the dredged material and will be used as part of the channel deepening project.
